Because I need to lower my rAvg, 12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. I'm not sure how old the bottle is, but I got it on clearance, so...

A: Pours a moderately hazy tawny color. Great head on this one, a two finger offwhite shade with fantastic texture. Retention isn't great, but lacing is stunning.

S: Raspberry candy. Tons of general sweetness with an artificial 'kick' to it as expected. A hint of wheat malt tries to come through, and almost does.

T: Fruity sweetness to start, before rounding out to a nondescript wheat finish. The chemical character is a bit pervasive in general. Still, it manages to be extremely bland instead of actively offensive. Congrats, I suppose?

M: Not as carbonated as I anticipated, but it goes down easily enough. Still, the chemical astringency on the finish needs to go.

O: Meh.
